2017

Year in Review

Tens of thousands of new students are learning and growing with eSpark and Frontier this year

Google for Education selected Frontier for their new Media Literacy Apps on Chromebooks program, announced at ISTE in San Antonio.

"We're thrilled to be selected by Google for this exciting partnership," says David Vinca, Founder and CEO of eSpark Learning. "Google has made incredible progress in helping schools adopt technology to improve teaching and learning, and using Frontier in tandem with Chromebooks will allow districts to truly transform learning."

Jason Bedford joined our team as our first Chief Customer Officer on March 27, leading our teams with the objective of achieving a seamless customer journey that supports educators in their practice and accelerates equity and outcomes for all students.

eSpark partnered with Jamf Software as our exclusive Mobile Device Management provider to streamline the management and deployment of individualized apps.

"Districts that utilize eSpark experience 150-200 percent academic growth over those without eSpark, and are able to save up to 75 percent on their app budget," said Sam Weiss, Education Evangelist, Jamf. "As the exclusive provider of mobile device management for eSpark, we're packaging the best learning technology with automated app distribution. We couldn't be more excited to help make differentiated learning a reality for our school and district customers and the broader industry."

Catching a glimpse of our students in action is always a high point of our days.
